The Congressional campaign cloned al Beaufort Friday night and tho reports from over tho District point to the election of Senator Williams. His candidacy la gaining every dsy and his friends in Aiken County should recall hit faithful service for 22 years —the best years of his life—and take interest in giving him a big vote on election day. This County Has nearly a third of the vote of the District, and that vote should speak loudly for Williams. The other Counties in the district are supporting him strongly. J Textile labor will recall that he has represented them in the halls of the Legislator for 22 years, help mg to pass laws to prevent docking In cotton mills; to provide for paying alf weekly; to provide notice before shutting down; lo provide for payment of discharged labor promptly, and to protect the health of the operatives. They will also recall that he fought their fight at Graniteville some years ago where shorter hours were agreed to. He is now advocating a national eight hour textile day. In his opening speech at Edgefield he stated, after paying a gfanrittf tribute to the foreign born who came with us becall?* they tw-ved *m* and had made such good citizens, saying they were good because they had left the heel of oppression in their native land,- that there are six million* here who have not be come naturalized while five millions of our Americans are out of employment, and some of them at the bread line. That those who fail to naturalize should seek quarters in some other land and give Americana their places of employment. The people of Aiken county will recall Senator Williams* legislation for roads, being first in the South to ret Federal Aid (White Pond to Eureka), and no one can f *rget tho san I beds this road replaced. It will also be recalled that Aiken County has put in the State System «+vof -nob— rf htgrtwnr^. largely through Mr. Williams’ efforts, and no one using or driving can forget the A is ’ ad ; h in i,| in wet weather and dust in dry weather, a short detour now being enough to remind one of the days gone by. And the Ellenton, Wagener and Salley roads are soon to be constructed, having Hire ady been placed in the State system of hard surface roads. With the completion of these, and the Windsor section of road, our State system will he a credit to any County. The school houses built under laws pa s, | by Mr. Williams and his colleagues, many of them introduced by him, as tin* Aiken Institute, Bath, Langley, Windsor, Wagener, and many other Aiken 1 linty. are a ct edit aud Tile guaranteed school ti teacher's sabra - act an ! pa cd bv Mr. \V Hiatus schools, a . a result of \> him modi a member ff the Stat! cr- Association, the tea hi r-State themselvef so honored him, is another accomplishment. The people of the City of Aiken will recall the three tules of paving in the (Fly of Aiken which Mr. Williams lent his aid to, even appearing before Council to recipe ■: ti it -tie ’* an ■ wi I . a-the bill to pave and drain the streets of Aiken. Others are: The Dental Clinics, the Health Department and the Hospital, these agencies having driven diphtheria, typhoid, malaria and other once dreaded diseases out in a large measure. The Health Department having given free thousands of preventive inoculations and vaccinations, and the Dental Clinics having repaired the mouth# of thousand* of school children, many others having received hospital treatment. These will not forget John Williams The people will recall that the 1020 statistics from Washington showed that South Carolina pro-gre-'cd educationally more than any other State in the Cnion, and \-ken Count) more than any other Count) in the State.

Only a few friendly lick* were pan-ad, and neither one of the gentleman ward injured—-only scratched. They were, tried before council yesterday morning, aud both plead guilty. Council desired tome evidence, and a number of witnesses testified in substance, that Mr. McCarty was standing talking with a number of the boys when Mr. Barnhill came up and asked him why he tried to bring him into the matter discussed before council and told them that he was trying to run the fire department. Mr, McCarty told him it seemed like he wa* trying to do this, when Barnhill said he was a lie. McCarty then struck Barnhill and they got into a general fisticuff. Both men expressed regrets of the affair.
